Today, we’re looking to the future and taking a look at an eco-friendly prefab home. What makes this home kind to the environment is the energy-saving technology that's incorporated into the design. This project comes to us from the architects at Polish firm Majchrzak Design Studio.
This prefab home with a gable roof has a dynamic facade. An artistic wood blind design elegantly blends the two levels of the home together. Imagined as a sustainable dream home for a family, this home is a great option for first-time buyers and couples looking for their starter home. Let’s take a look at some of the specifics. We think you’ll find that eco-friendly prefab homes are more than just a trend. They’re a practical and sustainable plan for the future.
The home is compact and petite with a modern edge. Its plaster facade is warmed up with wood that breathes life into the home’s exterior. Horizontal wood forms a Juliette balcony on the second floor and highlights the striking wood blind design that stretches up to the roof.
Extensive glazing on the home opens it up to the outdoors and lets in light. A double height space creates an atrium inside and true floor to ceiling windows create brightness and light. The wood blinds over the windows create privacy while letting light inside. It also helps to shield the home from the sun which can fade your belongings over time.
Looking at the home from the back, we can see the outdoor spaces around the home that seek to connect it with the landscape. A small deck on the ground floor and a balcony upstairs create opportunities to enjoy fresh air and bring more personality to the home.
Energy-saving technology is integral to the design of the home. A thickened layer of thermal insulation that regulates the temperature inside the home. Using a heat recovery system, the airflow inside the home is fresh and always the right temperature. These technologies help to reduce the overall energy used to heat and cool the home.
On the ground floor, there is a central kitchen, dining room, large living room, bathroom, and laundry.
Upstairs, there’s two bedrooms and a master with an attached dressing room and bathroom. There’s also an atrium sitting room where you could go for some alone time with a book away from a riotous family on the main floor.
At a distance, the home looks warm and cheerful. We hope you enjoyed our look at this eco-friendly prefab! For more prefab home inspiration, check out our feature on a futuristic solar-powered prefab house.
